One day both of my horns in my 67 stopped working. I have trouble shooted the whole system and have found that the horns crapped out somehow. I hooked up the big horns from my dad's 57 chevy to my wiring and they worked off of the horn button, so it has to be the horns. I don't know if I shorted them out somehow accidentally or what, but they are gone. They also don't work if you apply direct battery voltage to them. So my real question is: where can I get used horns? Does anyone have a working set (both high and low) with the original brackets that they'd be willing to sell me? I don't want the cheap plastic GM "service replacement" units and no reproductions are being made. I have tried several used camaro parts suppliers that I know of, all of which told me the horns for 67 are hard to come by and that they didn't have any. Help me please!
I have always had good luck with "Jimmy's" in Tenn.I have bought a few original parts from them,they always seem to have alot of misc. oodball pieces that I need.1-800-414-JIMS.
One of the places on my "winners" list BTW!
I'm guessing here, so bear with me... Check for an adjusting screw on the side of the horn. If there is one, loosen it a turn, and try the horn on a battery. Also,give the horn a sharp blow while trying it. Sometimes the contacts inside the horn get corroded, if you can get it to start honking, the corrosion will burn off.
If it works, re adjust the screw till it sounds right.
